An artist whose work has been gaining global attention this year is Canadian Kevin Cyr. The Stylesight Graphic team loves his creative exploration of old New York vans and delivery trucks.
Here he focuses on the vehicles’ heavily graffitied side panels to create some stunningly beautifully artworks. In our eyes Cyr is an artist who is really bridging the gap between street art and fine art.
For the past couple of years, Cyr’s work focused on vehicles he encountered on the streets of his neighborhood as well as places he has traveled within the U.S. and abroad. While the car remains an iconic status symbol in contemporary culture, Cyr finds beauty in derelict and unkempt vehicles.
With an exhibition in Toronto later this month and lots of respect in the street art world, Kevin Cyr is definitely one to watch in 2011. Check out more of his work at www.kevincyr.net
